Besides a couple showers and storms, it was a very nice spring day across the state.  The weather was great for the Vigilante Day Parade in Helena.  Thanks for the cameo appearance!  Flooding will still be an issue through the weekend with temperatures in the 70s melting more snow.  Snowpack is currently 159% of normal, well above average, which means an abundance of water that will come out of the melting.  Flooding could continue through the month of May.  This weekend will have a mix of sun, clouds and scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Highs will be in the 60s and 70s.  Thunderstorms will mainly pop in the afternoon and evening.  Sunday’s storms could be stronger with a little more sunshine and heating during the day.  Monday will be mostly cloudy with scattered showers and storms.  Showers and storms will move out of eastern Montana on Tuesday before another storm system triggers thunderstorms in the western part of the state on Wednesday afternoon.  This is an active pattern with showers and storms in the state every day for more than the next week.

Please be careful around flood water.  Water is powerful and dangerous.

Have a safe and fun weekend.
